Multimedia analysis in intelligent video system
CA 2325624 A1
A flexible multimedia information analysis apparatus stores a database (50) which includes both audio (54) and video (52) information.
Also stored are a plurality of content analysis algorithms for analyzing the audio information in the database. A user can manipulate a mouse to select one of the analysis algorithms. The selected algorithm is used to analyze audio information in the database or on a "live" basis as the audio information is received. Audio analysis algorithms can be applied in tandem with moving image content analysis algorithms applied to stored video data or live input video streams.
